In order to make sure that ESU1808 works properly with current driver versions, it might be required to update the firmware to v1.0.8.

The ESU1808 firmware update utility is available under Windows and Mac OS X. Below are descriptions for each operating system.

Windows

The firmware update utility for Windows is part of the driver ZIP file that you can download from our site. Before you use it, the driver should be installed. Please note that this update is needed only once, i.e. if you install the ESU1808 driver again later or if you install the hardware on a different system, you do not have to update the firmware. To start the process, launch the firmware updater FWUpdate_ESU1808_1.08.exe from the Firmware subfolder of the unzipped driver file. The following window will appear:

If it is version number is 1.0.8 or even higher, please click Exit and you're done. The update to version 1.0.8 will take a few seconds. Once the update is complete, the following dialog will appear:
